A couple of weeks back I covered some lovely examples of the flat web design trend. Flat web design is something that I particularly enjoy, it simply means that the UI will use little very limited bevels, gradients and overly textured elements and often the overall effect of flat design is a clean, usable and intuitive user experience. Flat UI Kits Today I wanted to build on the flat web design topic and bring you a collection of UI kits that are specifically focused on flat design. User interface templates such as PSDs or coded GUI files simply allow you to save time on a project.
There are several ways to make navigation responsive, and usually the solution we need is quite straightforward. But despite the apparent simplicity, there are many underlying factors which, when thought through and implemented properly, can make a simple solution even better without adding more complexity to the user interface. One of the problems I’ve encountered while building responsive navigations is that browsers currently don’t support CSS3 transitions to a height which is defined auto . Most of the time, we shouldn’t use fixed height either because the height of menu items might not be the same in all browsers, and the number of items may change. I also always try to reduce the weight of pages I build, so I’ve been wanting a solution that doesn’t require a big library such as jQuery to work.
60 seconds or less — the average time a user spends on a web page. A website must clearly communicate its main solution within 10 seconds, to achieve several minutes of the end users attention. Visitors time-on-site will give you a good idea of the popularity of your website. The higher the time-on-site, the better chance you have for a high conversion rate . This is exactly why having a well designed website is critical.
The past year has seen many leaps made to improve developer productivity through better tooling. We're paying increasing attention to our workflow and many of us have spent time optimising our usage of tools like Grunt , Bower , Yeoman and the terminal. Another important area worth spending time on is your debugging workflow – if you're like me, this starts with the Chrome DevTools. When building an application with a specific framework or language abstraction, there's actually some additional tooling available to you in the form of recent DevTools extensions. In this post, I'll share a quick summary of the latest developments in this area, ranging from the recent Ember extension Yehuda Katz presented at EmberCamp through to less well known extensions for Backbone and KnockoutJS developers. Note : Canary DevTools disables icons in the toolbar by default, but I've re-enabled them via the Settings cog to aid with visualisation.
This is a guest post by mobile design consultant Mariya Yao People downloaded over 30 billion apps in 2012, yet the average smartphone owner only uses about 15 of them every week. Even worse, a study by Localytics estimated that 22 percent of apps are only opened once. With all the money and effort being poured into mobile right now, why is engagement so low? While the answer to that question is certainly complicated, a number of common mistakes companies are repeatedly made in the app on-boarding process. We’ll be discussing user experience and more at VentureBeat’s upcoming Mobile Summit .
